(St. Augustine of Canterbury, Bishop)
Continuing His prayer to the Father, Jesus interceded for His disciples saying, “I gave them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from the Evil One. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth.” Jn_17:11b-19
Our sojourn through a hostile and foreign land, is this world. We no longer belong here than Jesus did. But He DID come to gather us together, to teach us that “Truth,” and to bring us hope for our true HOME. Bear with it, beloved, and our reckoning will come. Jesus is waiting for us with open arms!
